Get well card for Celtic Football club supporter

I was asked recently for a special Get well card for a man, with the guys favourite football team as the theme.
I had crafters block for a wee while, having no idea what to do. I looked for inspiration online and came up empty.
I looked at Celtic FC for ideas finding only photos of the players, football grounds and stadium, and some newspaper articles etc.
Nothing very inspiring, maybe because I don't follow or watch football.

My mojo had absconded. Does this ever happen to you?

I did find loads of various pictures of the team badge though, with the pretty shamrock design, so decided to go with this.

This is what I came up with; 

I created the team badge using 4 die cut hearts to create the shamrock then drew in the detail with a white gel pen. The background is the lovely Spellbinders Celtic knot 3D embossing folder which I highlighted in the centre using pencils. The rosette is from Sizzlits decorative strip die from Tim Holtz and I added tails and then topped with a die cut circle with stamped "Get well soon" sentiment in the centre.
I hope the recipient likes this and that this will hopefully cheer him up.

What do you think of my attempt at a football themed card?

Thanks for popping by and I'll be back with my big project for storage in my craft room I've been working on for a couple of weeks.

See you soon
